Address change within the state

A voter may change their address using the online voter registration application, by telephone, mail, or in person. You will need to provide us with your full name, the new address, date of birth, and the last four digits of your social security number, your Florida driver license number, or your Florida identification card number, whichever may be verified in the supervisor’s records.

Political party change

To change your party affiliation, you must notify us by submitting a voter registration application. Because Florida is a closed primary state, all party changes for a primary election must be made by the registration deadline which is 29 days before the primary election.

Name change

To make a name change, you must submit a voter registration application. In order for the signature update to be used for signature comparisons in canvassing absentee and provisional ballots, the update must be received before canvassing of absentee ballots begins.
